I am seeking advice on a troubled pitty. He is 3 yrs old and has been negleted most of his life. He lives outside full time on a heavy chain, he is not socialized at all and if he doesn't know you he doesn't like you.
It's really sad his owners 'are moving and don't want him anymore' (their exact words). My husband built him a 'triple re-inforced run' in the backyard and we plan on getting him this weekend.
I think he will like it we got him a heated dog house/ shed (it's really a shed with a couch, heater, radio, ect. lol)
We also bought him tons of toys and treats to try to win him over with.
I need advice on how to socialize him with people and other animals.
He is a beautiful dog and is very loving and loyal to his current owners. All we want is to give hime a chance at a life he has never had.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
I can provide more info on his 'personality disorders' if needed (lol I think he's bi-polar)
We will not put him down if we can't help him. He is secure and we do not have any neighbors to worry about.
